Getting seriously stressed!

I’m wading through the mud again, clawing my way to the end of term. But I’ve been wondering if my sheer desperation to have a break from the school runs, is as a result of the term being too long, or whether it’s all in my mind because I know a break is approaching?

And this year I’m making sure it is a break! I’ve ignored the pleas to attend tennis club, I’ve binned the intensive swimming lessons leaflets, I’ve reminded the guitar teacher we’re term time only, and I’ve told all my friends we’re out of circulation!

Only another week and two days to go (just two days for S), and then…sweet nothing for seventeen whole days. Except that Christmas thing of course.

For some of us, of course, things are just starting to get really busy from now until 26/12!

17 days of having rug rats under your feet? You will long for days like this, when they are all in school.....

I'd say, if anyone is in need of a break, it's you. Just, be sure to enjoy it. Don't be like my mother who CRIES out for a break from work to "relax", and then once she's off of work, just cleans the house top to bottom. Then wonders why her "break" didn't seem so "breaky".

You deserve a break! Enjoy every moment of it, the time will likely fly!

If I get another "Are you ready for the holidays?" from my patients, I'm gonna scream.

No, we're not ready, because all I need are Hannukah candles, and no one bloody well sells them around here.

Check out my poem for you & Maureen over at Maureen's place.

Hi there! Ignore this if you're not interested, but I'm just skipping through BlogExplosion looking for other mommys.

Me and a friend have set up a MSN group for parents to get together and meet others who share things in common with themselves. It's been a bit slow to get off the ground, so I'm looking for new members to join up.

The site is .

Take a look- if you're interested please sign up, or pass on the information to anyone else you may know who is interested.

Thanks :)

No newz - I knew I was forgetting something!

Dave, I was making light of the mountain that's about to drop ;o)

Hoss, I really should try and film the school run - kids are easier!!

Maureen - Twenty years ago we used to get snow, now hardly ever. But you never know :o)

MOH - I will have to tidy a bit as things are verging on desperate, but I won't go mad for the entire time ;o)

Ivy - I know, holidays always go too quick!

Doug, eBay? (Ducking eh? You put that bath duck back!)

Nadia, I'll be by to take a look, thanks.
